The Center for Immunity and Applied Genomics (CIAG), a joint entity within Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine, invites applications for a tenure eligible position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, in the broad area of Clinical Genomics (MD and/or PhD required).

Faculty appointment will be primarily in the Department of Pediatrics within the Emory University School of Medicine, with the possibility of a joint appointment in the Department of Human Genetics.

Areas of particular interest relate to the clinical diagnosis of pediatric immune disorders applying genomic approaches such as targeted or whole genome sequencing, RNA sequencing, and other functional genomic assays. Single cell biology is also an area of growth as it relates to understanding the biology of immune disease. Applicants will be expected to build a clinical diagnostic program focused on some aspect of neonatal or infant immunology, such as very early onset autoimmunity, primary immune deficiency, and chronic inflammation. The candidate will be expected to develop an innovative, externally funded research program, as well as engage in cross-disciplinary initiatives.
